Staycation Diaries: Day 4.
Howdy! Here we are, on the evening of Staycation Day 4 – I just got home from the Drafthouse where I saw “Tag”. But, more on that in a minute. Since I last wrote about Staycation, I’ve been a busy bee. I had an informal jazz rehearsal Tuesday night (our video shoot is Saturday morning, […]More
Just Saw It: ‘Ready Player One’.
I’m writing this at 10:15 pm on Wednesday night, after getting home from seeing the first showing of “Ready Player One”, Steven Spielberg’s creation based off Earnest Cline’s best-selling novel. This was just the movie I needed to see. I read the book last June, and I loved it. The funny thing is, it fell […]More
Watching: ‘Lady Bird’.
Thursday night I joined a friend to see “Lady Bird” – we were especially excited after all the hype it got at the Golden Globes last weekend and wanted to catch it before it left theatres. I’d heard a little bit about it, and saw the film’s writer and director – Greta Gerwig – on […]More

The movie revolves around a real-life tennis match (that turns out to be […]More

I finally saw what lots of people have been talking about “Ingrid Goes West”. “Ingrid Goes West” is the story of Ingrid Thorborn (Aubrey Plaza), […]More

Granted, I didn’t go to THAT many movies this summer, and every single one of them was at the Drafthouse, so, you get it. But, I really wanted to see this movie. The previews said Patti would […]More
Watching: ‘Baby Driver’.
Last Tuesday, I went straight from work to the Drafthouse to see “Baby Driver”. I had a free ticket to use, along with a free popcorn, and everyone I knew said this movie was SO good. Honestly, I wasn’t sure it was my style, but I figured I couldn’t really lose with Ansel Elgort as […]More
